For most students, irrespective of degree discipline, an important question is bound to be ‘What will I do after I finish university?’ Well, you have already made the first step towards the answer by picking up this Guide. Aimed at both undergraduates and postgraduates, the Guide provides useful information to assist, whatever your career goal. It leads you through the process of making your career choice and planning your job-hunting strategy with practical advice on how to succeed. You will find information on the career destinations of past Imperial graduates and a section devoted to further study and working internationally. Successful career planning starts early, and by that we really do mean your first year; it is not enough these days to just apply for graduate jobs on the basis of a good degree alone. Companies expect you to have engaged with all available ways to develop your skills such as volunteering, internships, sports and societies so planning your time effectively from year one will make job applications much easier. Remember that the Careers Advisory Service is here to help, whether your career goals are well developed or still quite vague. We offer information, advice, workshops, seminars, one-to-one guidance, vacancy information, an online jobs board for graduates and internship opportunities, as well as a very wide range of employer events. To find out more, look at our website www.imperial.ac.uk/careers and register with our online career management system JobsLive. You can also drop in to see us and browse the Careers Information Room. Most companies start their application process early in the autumn term for both graduate jobs and summer internships so don’t get caught out by leaving things too late!
